just wrap your loom and start.

Woven Scarves: 26 Inspired Designs for the Rigid Heddle Loom by Jane Patrick and Stephanie Flynn Sokolov is a VERY thorough guide to weaving scarves, probably because one of the authors is a teacher. Each scarf design has excellent instructions, and the sidebars have great information and pictures to assist you as you go. Now, this book is perfect for beginners, but let me tell you what you veterans can get out of this deal. Number one, this book goes beyond the plain weave, and secondly it shares fabric samples of each scarf and pictures so that you know how it's going to lay on the wearer/it makes shopping for fabric super easy. These 26 examples will no doubt inspire your own designs, because we all know you want to be able to do your own thing if needed. Both brand new and experienced weavers will not be able to wait to try them all out!
